I need to order that stencil I can already tell. I bet if you taped a wide tooth comb to it you could do a sweet white crappie pattern.

Very nice paint job bcd, I had planned to clear my chrome baits tonight. The bed is calling my name though been up for 28 hours now 8 hours of work and 8 hours of fishing plus chasing these kiddos and I am done. I picked up some auto clear and devcon so I'm going to make these chrome paint jobs work one way or another.

actually those were done freehand with an artist sponge but you're right, that stencil would have worked great. gonna try and fish in the morning and do some painting in the afternoon. i've got a couple baits that are almost done that i'm going to use that stencil on. should work great.

Good looking baits. For you guys that use devcon or other heavy epoxies, do yall not have problems with the action of the baits? I tried epoxy but it makes the baits way to buoyant for me. I still use a 2 part mix epoxy, actually a bar or table top coating kit that works really well but still has a lot of buoyancy. What else is there?

If you use a few drops of acetone in the Devcon it will thin it just a little bit and not coat it so thick. I use ac1315 and dip them, it takes 3 coats to get a good strong finish, it's not near as buoyant as the devcon, but it doesn't like some colors of paints and will peal the paint off when you dip them.

i add 3 or 4 drops of isopropyl alcohol to the devcon for a single bait amount. i get a better coating that way. not as thick. it seems to take a little longer to cure but it also seems to give me a harder finish.

BC this is a really good wounded bait look. I've been experimenting around with wounded or bleeding effects, also. Thinkin' you nailed it thumb

thanks bois. my son, john, actually came up with the idea of having it run the length of the bait tapering off as it went back. i was just going to do a little around the gills but he made the point that if a fish was bleeding and trying to swim all the blood would trail along the body. made sense to me.

I've picked up a few "chewed on" shad and looked at the wounds....little white meat showing alongside the red blood...your son's idea is just about perfect thumb

Attempted to add some blood and wound detail to a few baits. The bream gill has a faint blood trail (not the best picture) and the shad has a bite mark behind the belly. Think I'll use BC's sponge idea for the next chewed up shad hmmm

good looking. i like a little less "blood" on the bait. the next ones i do will be more subdued.

Still think you're onto something using the art sponge to apply blood patterns
